What fun! The translation notes contain an apology for those who speak authentic Italian, because this opera spoof is pure comedy! Nancy Grundahl has created a hilarious medley of some of the most famous arias of all time using Italian musical vocabulary for text as well as some “original” Italian-ish words with a little English mixed in. “La Vocabulario di Musica” uses each opera snippet to demonstrate the meaning of the text. For example, “Quando m'en vo” is con grazia (with grace) and con molto eleganza (with much elegance). The “Love Duet” from The Magic Flute demonstrates pizzicato. “Habanera” from Carmen portrays espressivo, apassionata, mysterioso, and ostinato, to name a few. A fabulous learning tool, this humorous compilation will bring the house down! For concert, festival, or just for fun!

  • March 11, 2008 I also sang this under Mrs. Grundahl!

    I was part of the first group to ever perform this piece for an audience! (NCADCA Honor Choir, Sioux Falls, South Dakota) At that time, I was a 1st soprano, but, now being a Sophomore in high school, I am a baritone. This was by far my favorite piece to...

    perform. I would highly recommend this piece for talented 6 and 7th graders.

    I am in Nancy's home choir, Angelica Cantanti in Minnesota and we are singing this for our 25 annual spring concert soon. This song is a favorite with almost all who sing it. It is so much fun and the audiences love it. I first saw it performed 2...

    years ago and I adored it back then too. I highly recomend this piece.
